Crazy Shaolin Disciples (1985)
Reviewed by: pjshimmer on 2005-09-26
It's a movie about Shaolin, so _of course_ it will involve Fong Sai Yuk, Hong Sai Gwen, and Hu Wai Chien, the legendary young adults that aided Shaolin in battling the Qing regime. And of course, Fong Sai Yuk always brings mischieves; here everyone seems to cooperate with him. The action is dynamic and well choreographed; few will dispute that. Ultimately your reaction will depend on your tolerance for nonstop cheesy gags.

There is one scene when one of the Shaolin students pretends to be the girl Ju Ju. It's played out for fun, but the scenery is fantastic -- imagine a golden crisp valley on the country side with waterfall, a barn, a few geese, and colorful fallen maple leaves, all in the backdrop of the lovely golden sunset. Makes you feel like you are on the edge of the world. Certainly one of the most picturesque moments in all of Shaw.
